Great holmertz 2018-06-26 1:01

Hello Brenda,
I love this picture for the faces on the wall and for how you took the photo with the man looking at them. It's a perfect combination of art, architecture and street life. I was happy to see that this is a work by JR. I didn't know anything about him until I saw a documentary movie a few months ago titled "Faces, Places", made by him and renowned French director Agnès Varda (one of the few remaining directors of the "new wave" of the early 1960's). The young man and the old woman travel the French countryside and take portraits of ordinary people and apply them all over façades or other places. It's a great movie, one of the best of the last season. If you haven't seen it you should look it up. I think you will love it.
Kind regards,

Default To holmertz: Documentary

Hello Gert,

Thanks for adding this photo as a favorite. I haven't seen the documentary you mentioned, but I have seen an interesting television interview with JR, in which he discussed several of his international projects. He's definitely an interesting artist.

Have a good day!
